Linking to a Nested Menu

Now that you have the new menu in place and the jump marker to stop the playline from seeing it, you have to create a link to it; otherwise you won't be able to use it.

Remember that a single-page DVD menu doesn't allow you to see the Next and Previous buttons, so you won't be able to use any of those presets. In fact, the easiest way to create your own button to link to a nested menu is to create a Text button. You can do this by following the instructions in the "Changing and Adding Buttons" section earlier in this chapter. Once you've created a Text button, return to these instructions.

To create a link to the nested menu


Scrub down the Timeline until you reach the start of your second DVD menu.


To add a link, do one of the following:

  • Click the Set Absolute Target button.

  • Drag and drop the button onto the Timeline at the point where the second menu starts (Figure 12.62).

    Figure 12.62. Linking the first menu to the second.

A link is now created between this menu and the first one.


  • Using this method, you can have as many nested menus as you like, although you must be aware that each one eats up a bit of valuable space on your DVD.
